Nature does it…

Nature does not ask

If you are ready or not.

She just does her thing.

 

*****************

 

Yes.

We did get snow overnight here in NH.

For us, here in Manchester, it was just enough to make things a little white

and force David to find his scraper for the car.

It was early for this stuff, especially since we have had a pretty warm Fall.

I am not ready for snow.

In fact, it kind of makes my bones ache to think about what is coming.

But I can still find the beauty in this first snowfall.

The beauty is that it should be gone by noon.

Winking smile

Happy Friday, Beautiful Ones !

OMG! Snow! That is amazing, beautiful tree in the background too. I guess with the long winter you'll get plenty of snuggle time :-). Happy weekend!

KIm,

I am dreading winter this year since last years was so bad. There has got to be a way to embrace it more, turn it around, actually look forward to it. Hmm I see the subject as a future blog post. You've got me thinking this morning.

Even though we had those 4" of snow in Early October, its been a lovely Fall ever since. In fact the leaves just all fell off our trees a couple day ago. It could snow any day now. Time to put all my ducks in a row and prepare for the solitude winter brings.

Hugs and Big Love coming your way.

Kate

Stephanie said...

you are so right! She does what she feels...your light dusting of snow looks beautiful, we may be sending more your way :)

Dianne said...

Love the haiku... I keep wanting to move somewhere cooler... but I too ache in the cold... I'm just not sure which is worse, hot flashes in the heat or aches in the cold!

Nanka said...

Yes nature does its thing and the image after what nature has done is simply marvelous!! Sad it gives achy bones too!!

Helen Campbell said...

Wonderful haiku! I am not ready for our cold weather and we get more rain than snow. But Nature pays me no mind at all. Thanks for sharing.

Olivia said...

I am with Kate in that I'd like to find a way to turn my views of winter around and embrace it with some type of appreciation. Here in the Pacific Northwest it means icy cold dark days of either rain or snow for four months or longer. I am going to look for that way...

My Queen, I'm wishing you a warmer afternoon and a lovely weekend, xoO

Marit said...

The sunlight through your 'bench' (what's the word?) and the little layer of snow... it's all beautiful! But to be honest... I'm not ready for snow either. That IS early...eeckk! Hope it melted an you got a beautiful day!

The Bodhi Chicklet said...

Lovely, lovely haiku. Snow? Egads! I had to scrape my car this morning too - I just it's time to put the garden hose away!

Queenie Believe said...

Snow, wow [sayes the girl from Arizona]. Beautiful and true poem.
Stay warm,
Always, Queenie

Annie said...

Too true. Even here in always the same CA, we have the occasional surprise and I like surprises.

rebecca said...

our indian summer just took a dive to much colder nights! the last run of frosty mornings has finally laid our bountiful garden to rest.

just the thought of winter has me shivering!

beth said...

noooooooooo.......not yet. no snow. you are not supposed to be here yet......please go away and wait your turn.........

Fran aka Redondowriter said...

Winter comes early and I know what you mean about not being ready for it. I know I never am. Lovely patio dusted with snow and love your haiku.

Elena said...

Yeah really, how come Nature doesn't 'hem and haw' like me! Can't we just skip winter? Or I like you're idea. Snow and go away by breakfast. Ice scraper? I don't even know where it is!

Cinner said...

so far we have been lucky although I can feel it in the air and know one of these days....have a great weekend Kim. hugs.

kimmie said...

There is a sort of "impending" feeling that comes with fall .... Impending winter! Argh! I agree with you about the early snows ... They are the prettiest and the briefest!

Fallingladies said...

we got snow too and I wasn't ready either! love that crow you painted a few posts down!

Susie Clevenger said...

Yes Mother Nature is one tough lady...love the haiku...hope the early snow isn't a sign of the winter to come.

Rosie said...

How unexpected for you Kimmie! However, looking at your fab photo makes me want to nip out and draw a smiley face in it to make you laugh, then photograph that and put it beside your PC monitor! xoxo

PS I am mailing you next week - will let you know when! 'o)

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Nor does Nature say, "Take it or leave it." It's more like: "Here it is, baby!"


Haiku your heart here or here

Marcie said...

What gorgeous light. And - yes - we all got unexpected early-season snow this weekend!

Dream With the Fishes said...

It does look lovely there, the snow mingling with the still present fall colors. Heck, the leaves only just started changing colors, no? Glad to hear you only got a slight dusting. We got hit with a whammy! Unexpected for us in the city as they were saying only 1 or 2 inches, and then late at night. Well, they were sooooo wrong. But it was all gone by this morning, thank goodness. Hoping that was just a stray thing, and we can have a little bit more fall!

elizabeth said...

Hehehe. That made me laugh. It's sort of what I think on the rare occasions that Portland gets snow. As in, yay, it's pretty! As in, yay, it's going to be gone soon! ;)

Wishing you warmth and comfort!
